Greetings from the apocalypse! The trouble with Tribbles is not how cute they are but how much they multiply, or in the case of "Star Trek Into Darkness," the silly plot point for which they cameo. That's the only thing I'll spoil from that movie (besides that it stinks), but luckily there's some sweet alternatives this week that boldly go where no J.J. Abrams movie has gone before … coherence.

Single young women of New York City, get ready for your mom to worry about what your day-to-day life is like! (And just when we'd explained to her that it's not like "Girls," too.) Everyone else, brace yourselves for your new favorite indie charmer: "Frances Ha."
Greta Gerwig plays the titular Frances, a 27-year-old modern dancer prone to scabby knees, bouts of wild movement in front of fountains and white lies about her employment status — but it's cool, she readily admits, as she's "not a real person yet."
The film, directed by Noah Baumbach and co-written by Baumbach and Gerwig, will finally hit limited release on May 17 after running the festival circuit in New York, Toronto and Telluride last fall. The agonizing six-month gap between festival screenings and the official release date, however, was better than letting the finished film sit on the shelf until spring, Gerwig told NextMovie.

Your mother always told you that math would be important. As it turns out — and we're not just saying this because it's Mother's Day and flowers are really expensive and we need to start sucking up now — she's right.
We just bet you didn't know that you'd need that math to decide what to see this coming month. From the party that won't stop in "The Great Gatsby" to superheroes galore in "Iron Man 3," here's your arithmetic-driven guide to May 2013, the official beginning of summer movie season. Get More »
In case you're not yet aware, we feel it's important to let you know about one of the most exciting cinematic developments of the young decade: Greta Gerwig is, like, a thing now.
With films like "Slumdog Millionaire" and "The King's Speech" having made their international debuts at the fest, the movies showing this year are among those we can't wait to see this fall — in fact, we listed 20 of them before TIFF even kicked off.
So, how did they fare? Well, here's what the reviewers from our sister site, Film.com, had to say... Get More »
